Contact / Booking Info

For information about booking George Abraham for readings, workshops, or panels, or to request press material or interviews, email Tyler Tsay at

2024 UPDATE: Given the high volume of event requests we've been receiving, George will only consider paid events for which travel and hotel accommodations are also covered. Please do not reach out for non-Chicago area events that do not fit this criteria, and please do not flood George's personal email with such requests. George only considers event requests through their agent.   

George is not taking unsolicited blurb requests or unpaid editorial requests for the foreseeable future, given their ongoing anthology and Mizna work. They do not have the capacity to consider unpaid writing solicitations. In general, please be upfront and direct about all asks and budgetary constraints. They appreciate everyone's understanding and patience!
